for tomorrow we're talking lower 60s. i think that's the best we're going to be able to do. and then once the rain starts, it's going to get even cooler. yes, we will have some showers tomorrow. it's still looking like that will be later on tomorrow afternoon. not so much during the morning hours or the early parts of the afternoon. i think 3:00 is pretty much the cutoff where we'll be mostly dry. after about 3:00 tomorrow things will go downhill. definitely the wettest period will be tomorrow night, though, and into the first part of sunday. sunday afternoon looks like it might dry out a little bit and then by sunday late afternoon, sunday evening some more showers come back. here's the trend on the temperatures. tomorrow only 63 degrees. then we jump up. we're a little warmer on sunday, 73. we may get a little sunshine on sunday but not much. 72 on monday and then the temperature comes right back into the 60s again on tuesday. and there's basically a chance of showers on each one of those days for the next four days. today's high temperature 73.
reagan. 72 dulles. cool in some places. 48 degrees right now for frederick. there's hagerstown at 64. it kind of depends on where the clouds are and where the clouds aren't and there's a little breeze blowing in places and some places the breeze has gone almost calm. that's really dictating the temperatures. but tonight clouds will come over for everybody. it will keep the temperatures 40s and 50s area wide. 60 and holding for pittsburgh and 53 for beckly. nice for richmond and raleigh in the lower to mid-60s there. in terms of the rainfall, there is a little bit back out to the west. we're not worried about this, though, because there's enough high pressure. as this rain is coming into the high pressure, it's being gobbled up and dissipating. but very, very active down to the south and southwest tonight. this is the same storm system that's coming in our direction and it is providing a lot of severe weather. earlier i saw where they had eight reports of tornadoes already, some in missouri and
down through arkansas and louisiana too. there's new storms firing up this evening in texas. nothing like that for us, though. but i think we will still have the potential for some showers and thunderstorms as that storm system arrives. again we don't worry about that tonight because it looks like it's just going to dissipate as it gets closer to us. your future cast, this is what we're talking about. tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m. we're dry. there could be a spotty shower or two through the day. by 3:00 to 4:00 tomorrow, this rain comes in. the heaviest of the rain comes in overnight saturday night and then we have more rain coming in on sunday as well. so it does look like a very, very unsettled period for the weekend. temperatures coming up tomorrow a lot cooler. a lot cooler. what happened to spring tomorrow? because 63 degrees and most of the day we'll be in the 50s. back to warmer temperatures but still rain and thunderstorms on sunday. 72 onened mo. then right back down -- 72 on monday.
then right back down to the 60s by tuesday and wednesday. the president and first lady think it's -- [ indiscernible ] they're spending the next few days in north carolina. on sunday the president will travel to beckly, west virginia. lespeak at a memorial service for the 20 miners killed in the recent mine explosion. president obama will have his work cut out for him. when he returns he's making his pitch for financial reforms. earlier today i spoke to fox news sunday host chris wallace about what's ahead for the administration. >> reporter: chris, good to see you. it looks like financial and fiscal responsibility seems to be the big hot topic here in washington this week. president obama went up to wall street to push back against wall street's push back against reforms. do you see any movement in that front? >> yeah, i do, brian. i think that as opposed to health care reform where the republicans saw no political down side to opposing the president's health care reform
package, i think they see a considerable political price to be paid if they're seen as obstructing, cracking down on wall street, that they'll be seen as protecting the fat cats at the expense of the little guy. so they don't have a deal yet in the senate and it may come it a vote, a kind of vote on whether to proseed or whether to fill -- proceed or whether to filibuster the bill on monday afternoon. but i think over the course of the next few days, that they are going to reach an agreement, at least some robes will switch to the -- republicans will switch to the democratic side and there will be considerable republican buy- in on a package. i think regulation is just too politically attractive to people around the country. i think they'll pass it. >> reporter: you'll be talking about that this sunday? >> we'll be talking about that this sunday with a top republican in the senate mitch mcconnell but we'll also be talking about the president's debt commission. it hasn't gotten a lot of attention but is about to. this is a bipartisan panel. the president has named 18 members to try to do something
